Having a climax would screw the plot
1 May 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

It's obvious it has no climax, the plot is about NOT having a climax. The main DEAD character, Cubas, is using such subliminal humor in a way to show some kind of regret for having built NOTHING solid during his life time. His existence was EMPTY. He just lived and died. That is why there is no climax! This is no bla-bla-bla-oh-there-should-be-some-happy-yap-yup-climax-honey romance, this is realism! Having a climax would screw the entire plot! The movie might not be perfect in showing this the way the novel does, but it does, and if you didn't noticed, well, you should then just read Brás Cubas's Posthumous Memories, the novel, by Machado De Assis. You won't regret.
